Do I have to inform my school of my change in relationship status if I keep my maiden name when I marry?

I intend to keep my maiden name when I marry. So, this being the case, why would I have to go through the hassle of filling out a lot of paperwork with my school to officially change my relationship status?

Can Mensan or anyone smart or with a knowledge of the law in this area here help me with this? Thanks.

My apologies for the delay in responding to your question. I must have missed it, and I am only reading it now, for the first time, ever.

I am unfamiliar with the laws of New York state, but it's my guess that there is no law requiring you to report your change in your matrimonial status (single to married), unless you were going to adopt your husband's surname.

Because you aren't, it's my belief that you don't need to make such a "notification," except for the fact that you may wish to inform the staff that your child now has a step-father, so he can have the same "unlimited records access" that you currently enjoy.

Hey, sweetie, I've been away for a while due to excessive work load and illness (I have migraines and fibromyalgia, as you know). Thanks for the tips. I've missed you. :)

P.S. I don't have a child and probably won't be having one any time soon due to career /health pressure, so your advice is very helpful--there's no caveat in your caveat for me. ;P

This would only be a guess, but I'd say only if it would affect you financially but I don't know the law, of course, Mensan will! I would see no other reason to tell them, other than wedding presents!! ;)

I think it a good idea to keep your name, it helps to keep a sense of your separate identity. Oooh I Love weddings! When's the big day? Where are you getting married?

LOL I only tried to give myself a thumbs up! Too early in the morning!!

Heather, sweetie, I'm so sorry to have been such a lousy correspondent--I've been pretty much through the wringer and feel I've only just made it on multiple levels.

The wedding, though, has been taken care of by others, so it's been, rather ironically, the most stress free and calming / charming aspect of my contemplation for a while--and it's happening next week! Wish me luck on the aisle in four inch heels. ;P

You must have had to hunt for it!

I don't know the date she's getting married, hopefully she'll come back here when she can.

I wish I could be there, I really do, I'd love to come.. but not for 20 minutes, etc but thanks for inviting me!
((hugs))such a shame you're so far away but one day I'll come over, when things are normal married life.. if there's ever such a thing!

I'm trying for May--I just don't want this to complicate my Ph.D. progress. But the wedding will probably be in May, on the beach, by a female JOP who is a friend of my fiancee. I wish you could be there--in fact, it would be lovely if you could be there, but it wouldn't be fair to ask you to fly all that way for a twenty minute ceremony with dinner after the fact. But consider yourself invited, all the same. (((hugs))
